Hi! For my sixteenth birthday I want to take about 9 friends into NYC for dinner. I want it to be a nicer restaurant that's cool/chic/modern/fun and so we can get dressed up. I love asian and italian food. does anyone have some suggestions for where we could go?! thank you so much:)

    You may wish to add when this will take place and how much you want to spend per person.

    Here are some recent discussions of Sweet 16 ideas.

      A favorite of mine, Vice Versa, is cool and chic looking. Great Italian food.
      Go for it.
      Happy Birthday!

      The links provided above have a few good suggestions, including Buddakan, which I haven't been to but sounds like it fit the bill for a place to dress up for and what many regard as very good Asian food. I've been to Vice Versa and find it quite serviceable for pre-theater, but I really don't see it as a place for a 16-year-old to celebrate her birthday with friends. Good food but kind of vanilla decor, older crowd, not "cool/chic/modern/fun," as requested.
